Recently returned from a brilliant stay at On the Track Lodge. Used the package including accommodation and transport which worked out really well (it was no problem amending plans due to poor weather). Wonderful hosting by Duncan, great setting, flawlessly clean and such attention to detail. Stayed in train carriage - unique, memorable experience with beautiful views. Other accommodation (yurt,...

Beautiful walk in, fabulous welcome, exceptional accomodation and lovely hosts. You couldn't ask for anything better. The icing on the cake of our visit was that we got engaged, but regardless....we couldn't recommend On the Track Lodge higher. Sensational!

Fantastic spot. This is now a regular stopover point for mountain bike trips on the Nydia Track, in fact, if the lodge was not there, it would be a once a year trip at most. Highly recommend the walk/ride in, even if just for the day, you won't be disappointed.

This was our second stay at "On the Track Lodge" and just as wonderful as the first! We walked in from the other end (Havelock end) this time and then out to Duncan Bay. They organised excellent transport for us to be able to do this and the accomodation and hosts were flawless. A thoroughly enjoyable weekend. Highly recommend to... More

We found the lodge just by chance in January whilst fishing in Nydia Bay. We came home and booked for a weekend stay. Perfect setting, great hospitality and the First Class Rail Carriage just great accommodation. We are going back at Christmas. Simon H

I looked at many places in the Sounds before opting for the Lodge, and are we glad I did. Boat trips in and out gave us a good look at Pelorus Sound and Nydia Bay in both afternoon and morning light, with stops at isolated jetties on both legs. The iconic carrot cake welcome - excellent standard of travel in... More

With my parents flying over from the UK for 3 weeks, I was keen to show them the best of NZ. But we also wanted to find a few spots off the beaten track for us all to enjoy a new experience. I'm so glad we chose Nydia and On The Track Lodge, and even more relieved we treated ourselves... More

Absolute, utter bliss! From the minute Tom, Duncan and Norma greet you with carrot cake and a pot of tea, you feel at home as they are the perfect hosts. Exceptionally comfortable beds, spotlessly clean toilets and shower facilities, breath taking views and delicious home prepared meals - there is simply not a single bad thing to say about On...

My sister took me as a treat to On the Track lodge while walking the Nydia Track. After a lovely walk we were greeted with freshly made, delicious, carrot cake and a pot of tea. The hot tub was soon fired up, and we were able to soak away to the sound of bird song and waves lapping the shore.... More

On The Track Lodge was perfect, fantastic hosts, fantastic food, and beautiful location. The walk in was a 5 hour hike through beautiful native bush, don't let the walk put you off though as a water taxi trip would also offer stunning scenery. The accommodation was excellent, lovely linen, a choice of cute quirky rooms, even a luxury tent which... More
